WHO FUNDS THE FRONTIER CENTRE FOR PUBLIC POLICY?
The Centre is a non-profit educational charity which was registered in April 1999. The chart below provides a detailed breakdown of the Centre's sources of funding in 2010. In order of importance, the majority of funding comes from private charitable foundations, followed by national corporations, local businesses, and individuals. The Centre does not accept any funding from governments to maintain its independent and fresh perspective on public policy.
WHY OUR INDEPENDENCE MATTERS TO YOU
1. No Government Funding
Because we seek to comment objectively on public policy, FCPP is the only registered Prairie-based think tank which declines government grants.
2. Diversified Funding Base
We diversify our funding base as much as possible to ensure that we are not beholden to any particular industry, interest or persons. Individuals and businesses that see value in exploring better policy support FCPP. The bulk of our funding comes from charitable foundations that support public policy work in Canada.
3. Board/Staff Firewall
A respected Board of Research Advisors guarantees the independence and integrity of our work. The Centre has a formal policy, embodied in a Board of Directors resolution, that forbids any direct Board involvement or influence in the Centre's education efforts.
For an objective, arm's length take on public policy you can trust the very independent . . . Frontier Centre for Public Policy.
